Oral Medicine, Oral Pathology and Oral Radiology Department

 

About Us

The department is a combination of three basic and important divisions of dentistry. The Oral medicine section is in charge of first hand patient assessment and complete oral and maxillofacial examination. The clinical examination is then followed Para clinical examination which is partly carried out by the Radiology division, which in turn is in charge of teaching all the techniques and diagnostics in Para clinic. Another division in charge of further Para clinical diagnosis is the Oral pathology, where specimens taken from different soft and hard tissue abnormalities are thoroughly examined and finally the differential diagnosis and treatment plans are determined.
